Faculty Associate, Survey Research Center, Institute for Social Research.

Assistant Professor, University of Michigan, School of Nursing.

Ph.D., UCLA

Dr. Kusunoki's research focuses on understanding the sources of gender, racial/ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in health and demographic behaviors during adolescence and the transition to adulthood. She is particularly interested in the social contexts in which young people are embedded such as their families, neighborhoods, and romantic and sexual relationships. Current investigations include the influence of multiple, dynamic social contexts on young women's risk of unintended pregnancy; the ways in which neighborhoods shape young people's relationship experiences; and the role of gender and relationship characteristics on condom use.
